    Charles Rogers among 8 to enter Michigan State Athletics Hall of Fame


    East Lansing — Eight new names are set to join the Michigan State Athletics Hall of Fame, as the 2021 class was announced on Monday.

    The class is led by former football standout Charles Rogers and includes Carol Hutchins (softball/women’s basketball), Franklin Gomez (wrestling), Anthony Hamm (men’s cross country/track and field),  Lynn Janson (men’s golf), Elizabeth (Shimek) Moeggenberg (women’s basketball), Floor Rijpma (field hockey) and Ron Scott (hockey).

    The class will be inducted Sept. 24 as part of Michigan State’s “Celebrate” weekend. The festivities include the Varsity Letter Jacket Presentation on Sept. 23 and the Hall of Fame induction ceremony the next day. On Sept. 25, the class will be recognized at halftime of Michigan State’s football game against Nebraska.

    In just two seasons at MSU, Rogers made a significant impact. The Saginaw native is still the program’s leader in touchdown catches with 27 and ranks third in school history in receiving yards (2,821) and eighth in catches (135). He also has the top-two MSU single-season marks for receiving yards (1,470 in 2001 and 1,351 in 2002) and TD catches (14 in 2001 and 13 in 2002).
